EA Sports UFC 3 is the sequel to the previous two games in the series, which was released for PlayStation 4 & Xbox One on February 2nd, 2018, and is the prequel to EA Sports UFC 4. Like before, the game houses a huge roster of talent from the past and present.

Ring announcer Bruce Buffer, Referees Herb Dean, Dan Miragliotta, Yves Lavinge & Mario Yamasaki, and color commentator Joe Rogan all return to fulfill their roles from the previous games, whilst now being joined by Jon Anik, who replaces Mike Goldberg as the main commentator, and Knockout Mode exclusive commentator Snoop Dogg, who can either do commentary alone, or be with Joe Rogan in the mode as options.

The game features 306 fighters (counting alternate versions) and 12 arenas. As of now, the game features 267 unique fighters, thanks to patches and fighter updates, with 39 alternate versions of existing fighters. An additional 22 fighters can be created to boost the roster to 328 should the player choose to do so. The arenas are as follows: Bell Centre; Honda Center; Jeunesse Arena; Madison Square Garden; MGM Grand; O2 Arena; Prudential Center; Saitama Super Arena; Scotiabank Arena; T-Mobile Arena; Toyota Center; United Center.

Of course, the game features unlockable fighters. You can unlock Bruce Lee by either purchasing him from the Store, completing Career Mode, or have save data from the previous game. Joe Rogan can be unlocked by winning a Sudden Death Rules match (with one bar of health for both fighters) in Knockout Mode with Georges St-Pierre via a Spinning Side Body Kick (L2/LT + L1/LB + R1/RB + Kick) on Normal difficulty. Bruce Buffer can be unlocked by winning the tournament (that you must create) named after him with Strict, MMA & Middleweight rules turned on. Once the tournament's made, autofill the brackets, and if done right, you'll hear Bruce Buffer yell "It's Time!". Win the tournament as Bruce Buffer to unlock him for usage in all the other modes.
